LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The City of Little Rock is adding another option for residents who want to remove storm debris from their property. Two drop off locations are being created, so citizens can load up their trees and limbs that fell due to the Christmas storm and leave them at these sites beginning Tuesday.
They will be at the following addresses:
• Interstate Park which is off of Arch Street south of Roosevelt Road. This drop-off is in a parking lot in the interior of the park.
• Reservoir Park which is off of Cantrell Road and east of Reservoir Road. This drop-off is in a parking area near the baseball field.
These storm debris drop-off locations will be open to take storm debris only from City of Little Rock residents. Each site will have a designated location to place debris and will have an on-site City staff member who can answer questions. Residents should look for signage in each park directing them to the drop off location.
Sites will be open Monday-Saturday from 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. However, since the City will observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the sites will not be open on Monday, January 21st.
The storm debris drop-off locations will remain available for Little Rock residents until they are no longer needed. Meanwhile, City crews continue to work diligently to pick up storm debris curbside and will not stop until it has all been collected.
If a FEMA declaration is signed, the City will be able to hire contractors to help with the storm debris collection. It is estimated that the total haul of debris that was created by the Christmas storm will be 22,000 tons. So far, more than 3,000 tons have been taken to the landfill.
